Slate estimates that Adam Lanza fired 200 bullets in what amounts to no time...

According to police in Newtown, Conn., Adam Lanza blasted his way into Sandy Hook Elementary School on Friday with three semi-automatic weapons, numerous 30-round magazines, and hundreds of rounds of ammunition. He killed 20 children and six adults. But that isn’t the chilling number. The chilling number is how long it took him to inflict this carnage: just 10 minutes.

It's hard to believe that the politics of gun control will not change in this country after this tragedy. It's just too hard to get around or ignore the corpses of so many children. Not only, as Eli pointed out, is Wall Street sensing the rumblings of massive social change on this issue, but also politicians, new polls, and gun dealers and buyers...

If the NRA survives this tragedy without a dent, then I will have to conclude that the organization is indeed unstoppable and guns are here to stay.
